This is the only time Let it Grow > Franklin's Tower was played. In the fall of 1977 the two songs were played in this order, but there is a break between them.
Weirdest pairing with Let it Grow? In 1989, Let it Grow > US Blues, to end the first set.
Seems like about half of the time, once Let it Grow began to stand on its own, it was the walk-off moment for the first set - that classic Bobby "We're gonna take a short break and be back in a little bit." The rest of the time Jerry asserts himself and ends the set with a Deal, a Don't Ease Me In, or something along those lines.

Some great tunes tucked away here, 1st set especially nice.
The second set of this show hasn't really grabbed me thus far, but I had to do a shout out for the wild Franklin's Tower that ends set one - holy shit - Jerry goes absolutely ballistic on the final jam! The preceding LIG is no slouch either, and there's also a very well played Bird Song earlier in the set, keeping with the motif of fantastic versions from March '81.
This is a fine show. Great recording. Love this era.

best sorce for this show
Really good underrated show. Best sounding source also. The Playin in set 2 is awesome, as is the Let it Grow--Franklins in set 1.

Sweet and high energy show.
This was my first show. I was fourteen and had never listened to the dead before. I had a fantastic time, but at the time didn't appreciate how sweet and subtle and rocking music could be at the same time. Listen.
